What happened to the goats?
A fairly interesting piece about the Bikini Atoll nuke bomb tests, One above the water and the other in. Various test ships are moored down. Unsurprisingly, most are reduced to rubble. Also, there are pigs and goats left on the ship, used to test the effects of the bomb on them. Since nothing is mentioned after that about their fate, we can only guess it was buh-bye!
Best Moment: A US official goes to the Island of Bikini to offer King Midas 'gifts'. Make your own joke there.
